Owner description: 25 Miles of Pictured Rocks Cliffs, 360 degree spins, countless smiles! Riptide Ride has the ultimate package of fun and beautiful scenery. Bring your camera since you'll have plenty of opportunity to capture photos as you admire bald eagles, towering cliffs, wildlife and waterfalls. You'll be entertained from the moment you step on board until we return to shore. Between sights we'll have a blast with spins, turns and amazing speed on our jet boat!

We loved our riptide boat tour! So fun!!!! Plus we loved that it was a family run business. Everyone was so nice. We wanted to show our kids the Pictured Rocks, but knew the slow boat cruise would be too boring. This boat ride was awesome! It was fast and exciting. Plus, we learned things and got to see 3 bald eagles. Captain Tim does a great job and you can tell he really enjoys his work. You will get wet on this ride, but they give you ponchos to wear. We were very comfortable except our feet did get cold. If you have kids, then this is the boat cruise to do!

Lots of excitement with spins, but not scary. We saw beautiful scenery and many eagles. A highlight was when the boat nosed under a small waterfall.

Munising is a great little town. many folks visit on their way to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
i highly suggest you take a couple of hours and take the riptide ride. unlike the old pictured rocks boat tour, Riptide is a heart-stopping ride that circles the entire Grand Island. Grand Island's cliffs are arguably more impressive than the national lakeshore. Captain Tim is a class act and he works hard to make sure everybody has fun. do yourself a favor and hit the riptide. it's a great time.

We took our 8 and 11 year old kids on this and couldn’t have asked for a better time. They absolutely loved the entire ride and Captain Tim made the trip fun and family friendly. I can’t believe that there were some complaints about seeing the actual Pictured Rocks. Although this boat ride doesn’t go along the shoreline it does go around Grand Island where you see some amazing cliffs, lighthouses, and even a couple bald eagles. We will sure to ride again next time we are visiting.

Family run business. The ride was outstanding. My son had to talk me into taking the ride and i would recommend this for everybody. Had a great time. the captain takes you to within 2 feet of the rocks and falls. Never thought riding in a Navy Seals type boat could be so much fun. Wear our seatbelts
